Praise the Lord and Promote the Losers
Now it’s official. The Koch Bros. are going to dump a mind numbing $900 million bucks in campaign cash on several republican candidates. Or as I love to refer to them as the 2nd place finishers, or the 1st losers. Because with the Kochs, we will be seeing who gets to make the polls and make the cut in the upcoming, all important, television debates (aka First Liars Club).
I know, I know, it’s really too early to be so cynical, but I have already seen this show. It was called the 2014 midterms, where the likes of Mitch McConnell and John Boehner swore on a stack of campaign donations that they were going to STOP Obama in his tracks, kill Obamacare, roll back his abusive regulations and do everything else it took to get re-elected. Only to see on the day after the votes were counted that they decided NOT to do any of these things…..In the best interest of America, of course!
Well my gullible, naïve friends it is a mere 7 months and fart-gargling has already begun. The Kochs haven’t said anything about upholding the Constitution, reducing the size and scope of government, lowering taxes, or honoring the 3 branches of government, and already the gravitational pull of hard cash is molding the campaign rhetoric. I could easily name the top ten candidates and there wouldn’t be a practicing ‘Conservative’ among them.
No, this will be a race to the debates then the real, wholesale lying will begin. We will suddenly see the RINOs transform themselves into flag waving patriots, with only the future of America on their minds. Get ready for Lindsey “Gravy” Graham, Mike ‘Huckabuster’ Huckabee, Jeb Bush and a host of others, not do what they say they are going to do, if they are president. Now that’s going to be a boatload of bullshit.
The sweet irony of the Republican field is that it is being established by the Liberal Media. The Washington Post already has the Republicans parsed into 4 fields so that they can be easily identified and crucified by the Democratic Assassination Machine.
It is so bad that the Post has reduced, like cooking stock, the top 13 candidates alphabetically, so as to make them easier to identify, at slaughtering time, but left out Carly Fiorina.
Now I don’t want to go out on a limb here, but if you’re a former member of Congress and you have the guts but not the record to run, you’re an IDIOT.
Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Gravy Graham, Rick Santorum, John Kasich and Ted Cruz all from the U.S Congress, only two of which are remotely true Conservatives, but one has already been washed out in an earlier Primary, while the other is a Tea Party darling and will be crushed by the RINO machine. The rest are a bunch of back benchers, with a lot to say and not one accomplishment to back it up.
Bush, Christie, Jindal, Perry, Huckabee, Kasich (again) and Walker are all former or current governors, none of which has done squat for the Constitution or Liberty, except of course for Jindal ( who is of East Indian extraction and hasn’t met the bigoted Left yet)and Walker, who are both sadly underrated and ignored. You know, ignored like Carly Fiorina, who isn’t even on the list. Yeah, like nobody will even notice the only missing true Conservative candidate and is a female. Allah, Sarah Palin.
So arrogant and elitist is the Post that they have given all Republicans four lanes to run in: Tea Party, Moderate, Evangelical, and Conservative. That’s it! And they have all candidates eliminated but these three:
“Cruz doesn't own the Tea Party lane; he's in third. He doesn't own Evangelicals; he's sixth there. Scott Walker has the right. Jeb Bush has the middle. No one else has anything.” Now that’s elitist as it gets.
Yes, it all makes you wonder who has the guts to call you up and ask for your campaign donation, when a couple of billionaires are going to establish the field. Wouldn’t you love to be a fly on the wall when Gravy Graham or Huckabuster is sitting in David Koch’s office going over his list of desired tax deductions and regulation rollbacks. It just makes you all fuzzy all over doesn’t it.
Nevermind, it’s all an exercise in futility anyway. The game is rigged, there are only six states in play and we haven’t even got the memo that all illegal aliens will be eligible to vote, while Congress didn’t have the time or inclination to get a law passed that allows all military personnel to have a say in the election. Nope, it is NO longer my obligation to vote, it kind of makes me feel like a co-conspirator to treason.
